You’re invited to join November 19th to hear from Ger Baron, City of Amsterdam’s CTO, and MIT Senseable City Lab’s researchers, how MIT and AMS Institute are working on the with the first fleet of autonomous boats: #Roboat.


Introducing the concept of Waste Streams

Smart Urban Mobility

Researchers at MIT and AMS Institute have developed an alternative strategy for garbage collection in the historic center of Amsterdam: the concept of Waste Streams, which is part of the Roboat project.



Smart Urban Mobility

Amsterdam gets world’s first fleet of autonomous boats.


roundAround: an autonomous 'bridge'

Smart Urban Mobility

Keeping the center of Amsterdam connected to other areas that are rapidly (re)developing can be a challenge. Could a fleet of autonomous boats bridge the waterway between Marineterrein Amsterdam and the Amsterdam City Center?

Roboat offers a new kind of on-demand infrastructure: autonomous boats that collect waste, transport materials and people or - when combined - form floating bridges and stages, all while sensing the city.

During the online seminar we will introduce the full-scale boat, and show how the full-scale hits the water for the very first time. Exciting developments preparing the grounds for the next phase of the research project.

When: November 19, 16:00 CET (10am EST)

Speakers joining from Massachusetts Institute of Technology: Fabio Duarte (Senseable City Lab), Tixiao Shan (Senseable City Lab), Drew Meyers (MIT Civil and Environmental Engineering).
